Fritz Reichenbach writes a response to Christian Frautschi's October 26, 1886, letter. Reichenbach talks about the farm he and his family live on near Stanford, Kentucky. The area is known as the Saaners' Colony because of the number of German-speaking immigrants in the area. He also mentions several families living near them.
